Inside, there are two bedrooms, one with a Queen bed, the other with 2 twin bunk beds (only the bottom bunks made up and can be used). The modest kitchen is perfect for preparing meals and the living/dining area is nice to play cards or read a book in. A bathroom with shower stall is shared by all.

It is a short 2 minute drive to the small town sandy beach at Barrett's Cove on Megunticook Lake. There is not an actual usable sandy beach at this property, but the nearby beach is great for kids and that is why we have classified it as being on or in this case - "near" a sandy beach.

The people at On the Water in Maine that I dealt with through out the renting process were friendly and a pleasure to work with. I was kept informed from the min I reserved the cottage until it was time for us to get there. The instructions were clear on what we needed to do and we had no issues.
This was a great place to stay, we rented two other houses, not through on the water and they were horrible. The third time was the charm and this house met all of our expectations for a cottage right on the lake which was the best feature. Being at the end of the lake in a quiet cove was just perfect.

The folks at On the Water were excellent and very professional. I was very satisfied with their service.
The location of the cabin on the shoreline of a cove in Lake Megunticook was superb; restful, secluded, great swimming, lots of loons and bald eagles. Overall, the cabin is in good shape. The windows and slider do not work well and need replacing. The only other caveat is the mice. The Decon mouse bait stations were not very appealing. You have to make sure to keep all the counters and food preparation areas clean and all the food put away, or you will have little visitors. I would definitely rent this cabin again, my family had a great time!

The staff at On the Water make the rental process so easy. They really try to ensure that you have the best vacation experience possible. We couldn't be happier with the service that we've received over the years.
This was our fourth stay at Little Pines cottage. The best feature about the cottage is the location. The cottage sits right on the water with spectacular view of the mountains. The lake is perfect for swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding. When not on the water, most of our time is spent on the front porch where we can enjoy the view while dining.

We had an excellent experience working with your agency. We found it on the web, and after we had made our reservations, we received timely information about the contract, setting, directions, and so on. The check-in went smoothly, again with email reminders about code for lock, and how to check in. The written materials were clear and helpful. The second day we were there, one of the staff came to let us know that a truck would be coming for a brief cleaning of the sewer system. This was just a 20-minute "job" and we appreciated the advance notice. The day before we left, staff brought a boat for the next customer and placed it at the dock, with assurances from my husband that he didn't mind moving his canoe. He was very courteous and respectful of our final night, and only proceeded after we told him we didn't mind. Our check-out was smooth as well, so overall we have nothing but praise for On the Water in Maine and the professional way our rental was handled.
We loved our stay at Little Pine Cabin. Our favorite thing was being right on the water, just a few steps off our deck--so handy for canoeing, swimming, and fishing, plus the luxury of such beauty from early am until late evening. The call of the loons, croaking of bullfrogs, chirping of birds...the wildlife added a peaceful and soothing background for our stay. I especially loved the big picture window in master bedroom, so every am we woke up to the view of the lake. The cabin was clean and well equipped with cookware and dishes and odds and ends. The water was hot for showers and dishes. Everything was in good repair, except for one window off master bedroom, which was off it's hinge and had to be closed and opened manually. The "neighbors" renting cabins next door were respectful of our privacy and kept things quiet after dark/at bedtime, so we were able to sleep well also. Thank you!

The entire process of renting with On the Water in Maine was very simple. Everything was explained to us in emails and the staff answered questions promptly.
The property was right on the water and had a deck with gates which were very useful. The property allowed easy access to the water and beautiful views especially at sunset. The property was small but very functional. The only thing that would have improved our experience is if the property had laundry facilities. A dryer would have been very useful.
